Teachers affect eternity; no one can tell
where their influence stops.
Henry Brooks Adams
The child in question wrote spontaneously in his writing journal in his first grade classroom: "I also had an died/easter egg from Social Skils Goup (SSG). It is the best thing I ever been in!
My jaw dropped when his teacher showed this to me. This kid, who resists interaction, who dives under tables rather than make eye contact, who refuses to talk about remote events or answer questions, not only acknowledged our group, but claimed it was the highlight of his life---unsolicited!
Needless to say, I can't wait to see him again on Wednesday! I think all of us make more impact than we realize, and the effects can continue on and on. When IEPs and paperwork get you down, think of the little successes that happen during your day! Someday, a kid or parent will remember you and thank their lucky stars that you were a part of that child's life!
